Critics of presidential aspirant Rodrigo Duterte took the opportunity to attack him after he allegedly cursed Pope Francis after getting stuck in traffic during the Papal visit last January.

But Parokya Ni Edgar vocalist Chito Miranda remains a loyal supporter of Duterte despite the criticism he is receiving for cursing the Pope.

Chito Miranda expressed his thoughts on the issue by posting a message on his Facebook account.

Then he continue to explain his opinion about the issue on his Twitter account.

The cursing happened during the proclamation event of Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Laban ng Bayan on Monday, Duterte shared a short story on the crowd about the heavy traffic he experienced where he cursed the Pope.

“Sabi ko, Bakit? Sabi sarado na ang daan. Sabi ko, Sinong darating? Sabi si Pope. Gusto kong tawagan, ‘Pope, p—– — ka, umuwi ka na. “Wag ka nang bumisita dito” he said, earning laughs from the crowd.

But still not everyone was amused, including the Presidential Spokesperson Sec. Edwin Lacierda.
